Watershed Planning: Strategies and Tools to Protect and Restore Coastal Water Quality
March 8, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
The North Carolina Coastal Federation, Albemarle-Pamlico National Estuary Partnership (APNEP) and the North Carolina Watershed Stewardship Network are hosting a free one-day workshop titled Watershed Planning: Strategies and Tools to Protect and Restore Coastal Water Quality. The workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, March 8, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Jockey’s Ridge State Park Visitor Center Auditorium in Nags Head.
Join state and local water quality professionals, planners and managers for this training on coastal watershed restoration planning. Stormwater runoff is the greatest polluter of our coastal creeks, rivers and sounds. In an effort to provide workable solutions to this problem, workshop participants will learn how to protect and restore coastal water quality with cost-effective watershed management strategies.
Interactive presentations from WithersRavenel, North Carolina Division of Energy, Mineral and Land Resources, North Carolina Watershed Stewardship Network and the federation will feature tools and strategies for setting quantifiable goals for reducing the volume of polluted stormwater runoff, explain how to strategically select the most effective best management practices to achieve water quality goals and engage coastal communities in this effort.
Five professional development hours approved by the N.C. Board of Examiners for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors are being offered.
